One! Ah Ah Ah!

Our Avery has learned something new...Again. And I'm sure it's due to watching Sesame Street, working with Momma, Daddy and her pal Chris, who reads to her whenever she wants.


Drumroll please...


Avery can count! Yes, with numbers. She's not that great when you ask her to show off, but when she's in her own little world, we'll catch her counting. During her bath yesterday, I was singing the counting song from Sesame Street. I got to three, and she took over from there. Then she got stuck saying "ate, nin, ten" over and over and over.


Today Kenny and I went to lunch with Avery at a Chinese restaraunt. There were fish everywhere (along with Santa Clause, wreaths, and garland, but that's another story). I asked her to count the fish. She said, "one, tee, foe, fife, sicks, ate, nin, ten!" Yes, she skipped two and seven. I asked her again. This time she skipped four and seven. Lucky number seven; or is it unlucky?


Anyway, I'm proud of my 19 month old child who can count. Or maybe it's just memorize. Either way, she's still learning!

Yay, Avery! Glad to hear she's counting! Pretty soon she'll be keeping score at ball games.

She is a good counter and good with colors.

Her four (foe) sounds a bit like she's speaking ebonics.

Yeah, Avery!!!

Lawson counts all the time but when he is by himself. He likes to count things in books. His spanish is a little better than his english as far as pronunciation. Right now we can make it too eleven, which he says emphatically when he makes it there.

For dad's it is even more exciting because we aren't around them all day long so it seems like we go to work then come home and they are doing something different. It is fun.

Where does she get her intelligence?

Glad to hear that she is counting! My kids don't like to "perform" in front of others either. They make me feel so silly for trying to get them to say or do something special in front of other people.
